GLASGOW | A HISTORY OF THE CITY

Login for pricing

Beloved, reviled and not only by Glaswegians, Glasgow isn’t just the industrial revolution nor the Victorian slums. Founded in the sixth century, its forebears pushed back the Romans. The roof of its cathedral, founded in the twelfth century, survived the Reformation. Its fifteenth-century university welcomed Adam Smith and the Enlightenment. It prospered from sugar, tobacco, cotton and slavery in the the eighteenth century, and saw the rise of the Red Clydesiders in the twentieth.
